earn around you is whisper about the bad news and that bad news is hillary clinton. 1,000 registered voters in florida found hillary crushing opponents in that pivotal state. in head oh-to-head matchups voters picked clinton 52% over 41%. it's a bit early for popping the champagne but this cannot be good news for republicans who must cling to florida if they have any hope of winning in 2016. joining me now in austin, texas wayne slater, senior political writer in the dallas news and a favorite in "the war room." >> great to be with you again. >> michael: wayne, i'm not one to count my chickens so far in advance but this makes the hill look pretty steep for republicans in florida. what is your take on this very early early poll. >> not only is florida important. it's going to be important across the board any way. but the idea that hillary clinton would beat the two prominent republicans at this point in that state is astan initialing. florida has been moving away from republicans the last couple of elections. it's a crucial state the winner has to win. this just tells you that hillar
but at the same time young and dumb is a good excuse. i don't know like hillary clinton can claim 55, i was young and dumb. >> i was so stoned back then. >> the apology thing doesn't do anything for me. it's like stop being a politician. when you killed a million people because of your decisions make being a politician isn't for you. go to another job. >> john: i respect what you're saying but as a taxpayer and a guy who has a child who gets to pay for the rest of his life to their decisions i'll take the apology. now we can turn to the other cable news network where they tell people to feel so good about that wonderful war. are there more media personalities that you're willing to forgive than others? >> no, no, not at all. i don't want to be the devil's advocate, but the problem is-- >> please. >> the problem with that right from the get go we had colin powell and all these people who looked very convincing, a lot of of--there was complete lack of information, but believable stories in the form of washington reporters who said they spend all day together, they read the same things. they're tal
toage there were plenty of democrats to supported this, senator john kerry and hillary clinton. >> if you know the lies that dick cheney told his best friend, dick army, who was against the war at the outset, he was the majority leader in the house he convinced army to flip by lying to him. should we really expect hillary clinton to have known numb than what cheney was telling them? >> i knew. i was right and i was just a kid. >> but you didn't know. we all felt the same way. >> i listened to scott ridder, the u.s. inspector who said they weren't there. >> but when he convinced his best friend that was against it that there are things happening that you don't know about and sits there and lies to him. >> lauren, unfairness, do we have to castigate democrats evenly for this. >> oh, certainly. you'll find no argument from me. >> i'm standing up for hillary. >> i found her timing of her coming you the in favor of gay marriage on this particular anniversary. i do want to play who said you the. i'll read a quote and you tell me who you think said it from march of 2003. imagine you h
announcement yesterday from former secretary of state hillary clinton in a video that she prepared for hrc, the human rights campaign. >> i suppose marriage for lesbian and gay couples. i support personally and as a matter of policy and law embedded in a broader effort to advance equality and opportunity for lbgt americans and all americans. >> bill: so last week it was senator rob portman because his son came out to him as a gay man. this week it is hillary clinton, chelsea is not even a lesbian. >> can you believe it? >> bill: what is going on. >> she didn't even have to have a gay child to be for marriage equality. i don't know what is going on this week. certainly it was expected that the former secretary would support marriage equality. you remember when new york was debating marriage she publicly endorsed that effort. but it's a big, big deal because it heats the fire of 2016 speculation but also because she has kind of come full circle like a lot of lawmakers. when she ran in 2008 she only supported gay marriage, and now she's there where most americans convincin
to cpac what is fascinating is it has always been considered the fringe far right. during the clinton years, that's where the crazies went that's where you could buy bumper stickers and hilary and bill killing people. but it wasn't really seen as the republican party. it was like the crazies, the fevered swamp, and it's kind of interesting, but you forward to today it's synonymous. it's just as crazy, but they represent the republican party and the conservative movement so the problem is during the 10, 15 years ago any republican party did not go to cpac but now they are one in the same and they find themselves at places like cpac where you have zaher as sort of the prop comic, big gulp. >> hal: the carrot top of politics. >> right. so that's the delima that they find themselves in. >> hal: and not inviting chris christie who arguably is their way out as far as who is polling best on the republican side. simply because he reached across the aisle to deal with a real problem. you deal with the media, you know, veneer of the republican party at media matters.org. and
pin them. just pin them. you're done. [ whistle ] hillary clinton, i'm glad you got your e-mails hacked. you're done sending and receiving e-mails in comic sands. these are top secret bits of correspondent. not third grade art project. once you're secretary of state i think you graduated to a sarah. hillary clinton, you're done. and finally cvs. you're done telling health insurance applicants you're going to make them tell you their weight. it's an invasion of privacy. plus they are american so you already know the answer, kind of chubby. how to fix this problem and create thousands of new jobs. start hiring carnival weight guessers. i'm done talking now. drop and give me 50-thousand. >> michael: of course i'm joined with brett erlich right now. brett, really interesting stuff how long have you been a coach? i mean, fake coach? >> it's funny you asked that. i spent years as a fake assistant. when i was really little i used to hand water to the players. >> michael: there is nothing in there. >> fake water. >> michael: obviously you were a fake coach. >> mm-hmm, good at it. >
clinton endorsed gay marriage. >> lbgt americans are our colleagues, our teachers our soldiers, our friends our loved ones, and they are full and equal citizens and deserve the rights of citizenship. that includes marriage. >> michael: great stuff. totally great stuff. progress always great to watch, but to be fair it's not exactly risky that position puts her squarely among the majority. support for gay marriage has reached an all-time high according to a new poll that is out today. it is nearly double what it was in 2004. but at cpac the republican bases show how out of step it is on that issue. they attacked rod portman for backing gay marriage after his own son came out. >> just because something like that hits home, i don't know why you change your beliefs. i mean that's what bothers me. his belief is very easily changed just because his son is gay. i don't get that. >> reporter: he came out in favor of same-sex marriage. what is your reaction to that? >> horrible. that's his fault. and he gets no sympathy from me. >> quit being so selfish as to think only abou
with what you're talking about? >> oh absolutely. 's terrific lawyer. we worked together in the clinton administration. he really understands these issues. i think that you're going to see a very forceful advocate, and someone who is very knowledgeable and can really help the administration navigate in the coming months the negotiations on this issue of immigration reform. >> michael: and do you think then that we will see comprehensive immigration reform this year? >> you know, i have been working on this issue for over ten years, even when i was in the white house, you know, 13, 14 years ago. so i am cautiously optimistic, but the real--i actually saw what i guess boehner said something today about the secret committee in the house that is also very close to negotiating something, the bipartisan group. that is the first sign of that i've seen. it will be the house republicans who are worried about tea party challenges, challenges from the right. they will be the obstacle. if there can be movement in the house, then yes i'm cautiously optimistic. >> michael: but there we go again. if t
-wing news and the fact that hillary clinton came out fully for gay marriage yesterday. >> yeah. >> hal: this is some good stuff coming up. we'll be back right after this. >> oh, my god, this is so amazing. it's all anybody in my class is talking about. >> announcer: it's the "stephanie miller show." ♪ break the ice with breath-freshening cooling crystals. ice breakers. this show is about being up to date, staying in touch with everything that is going on politically and putting my own nuance on it. in reality it's not like they actually care. this is purely about political grandstanding. ♪ ♪ i talk to them every day ♪ >> hal: welcome back to the "stephanie miller show." i'll hal sparks with jacki schechner. talking about the rebranding of the republican party. now, or the lack thereof, that's the thing is that -- is it even possible at this point -- let's go to joe in lockport. >> caller: hey, hal. the brand will never work period. >> hal: right. >> bill: bottom line is you cannot take a store brand's fabric softener and turn into it boun downey. it is never going
dianne feinstein, but also lindsey graham and others. like at hillary clinton, al franken, elizabeth warren the senate is different. you get to the senate and people hold their head down for like the first six years. they move they are a work horse not a show horse. ted cruz is not like that and i think it's only a matter of days before he steps on his you know what? >> michael: yeah, he went over to mary landrieu's desk here 4:00 am -- after he tied china and the un and abortion together and reprimanded him, and then she walked away and supposedly he was just sort of chuckling as she walked away. >> the senate for better or worse, i guess we still have to call at it gentle person's club if you will. unlike the house they really treat themselves with respect and that counts for a lot. that's why cruz's attitude flagrantly just violating all of the rules of decor um and respect for other members has turned people off on both sides of the aisle -- the worst of the tea party. the worst of the tea party. >> michael: it's incredible and maybe the state he comes from as h
bill clinton until 2004, they would have colt it in the underlying legislation and forced a vote on that. instead, they stripped it out so there's going to be essentially a a ceremony yell vote on the assault weapons ban if any at all, but they're not using the power that they have in the senate to actually get this done. you were right to note that's not by accident, not because they're bad politicians it's because they want the outcome that they're guaranteeing. cenk: if the departments can't win on this, is there anything they can win on? if they can't win on anything, why would anybody vote for them? >> the democrats only have so much political capital. when the gun proposals came out a lot of us said it would be a really tough climb to get these out of the democratically controlled senate and it's going to take capital political capital, president obama pushing hard to negotiate on this bill. when they didn't use that political capital it's not going to get done. you already said it's going to be a ceremony yell vote most likely on the assault weapons ban. forty isn't enough
's been on the verge of doing something more. we've learned that hillary clinton and leon panetta both were pushing for more direct aid for opposition months ago. he has been resisting. it's a mess. how this plays out we may some day thank the president for not getting the u.s. involved, or we could look back and say he missed the opportunity. the possibility that someone has used chemical weapons has taken this to a far more dangerous level. >> michael: yes, it's the pressure of everything presidential decision when it relates to issues like these. a little silliness accompanies the trip to the israeli embassy. a video commemorating this visit, and take a look at this ridiculousness. >> welcome president obama to israel. we express our appreciation for what he has done for us. >> the bonds between the united states and israel are unbreakable ♪ thank you for being a friend ♪ travel down the road ♪ and back again ♪ your heart is true ♪ you're pal ♪ thank you for being ♪ a friend ♪ >> michael: eleanor, this goes back to my thinking that this entire trip is about just show
. is this a fair i didn't six from our republican friends? >> no, they have in the balanced any buts. bill clinton and the republicans in congress balanced the budget, but that's because the economy was growing in 1990s. i was there, i know it. it was balance -way before anybody expected it to be balanced. there is nothing that is particularly important about balancing the budget. it sounds good, but you don't really want the budget to be balanced if you have a lot of people who are unemployed or under utilize examines city. there's no reason to balance the budgets on the backs of the poor and if it means sacrificing investments in education job training, research and development, infrastructure. those are investments in future growth, the future of our country. we don't want to reduce those investments for the sake of some totem which is called balanced budgets. >> you pointed out to the gop leadership is held hostage by the tea party. when john boehner said we don't have a long term debt problem in this country it seemed he and president obama agreed to tone down the rhetoric to calm people a a
balance which is a cnn problem. and chuck todd especially never been a fan of obama or hillary clinton, and has -- at certain points intentionally -- the idea is not real reporting but to throw tacks under the tires, and -- but that has nothing to do with this. this is chuck todd eating other reporter's time. which is -- who's to say they haven't asked those question -- everybody there had their own singular question. this is chuck todd thinking i am getting screen time, i'm getting these questions so i get the tape. >> chuck and i go way, way back so it's very hard for me to have any -- i just have a very warm spot in my heart for chuck and the work we did a long long time ago. but that aside, i think there is a limbed amount of time in these press conferences. and it's a fair thing to say take a question i just want to get everything out because it's running around in my head, and he is in some regards disrespectful to the other reporters in the room. >> hal: right. he is not in the press room at the white house. there are a lot of worldwide press there who have
a president doing basically what the israeli palestinian conflict is, since carter i suppose, the way clinton did it with the -- with the ira, british idea. this can be solve. this can be permanently over. let's get past this. so i'm fascinated to see what people's responses will be. if you watched fox, you didn't see it. >> they didn't show it at all? >> hal: no. we'll be back right after this. 1-800-steph-1-2 is the number. and we're going to play some of this, but i also want to get from you guys how you think the week went. real genuine criticism? >> of us? >> hal: yes. because the next time we do this -- >> oh, please be kind. >> hal: -- if there is a next time, we'll get a real read on this. am i awake right now? i don't even know. we'll be right back on the "stephanie miller show." >> what is all of that noise? >> announcer: it's the "stephanie miller show." ♪ come in now and sea food differently. visit redlobster.com now for an exclusive $10 coupon on two lobsterfest entrees. i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're ho
do because george bush was the dude p. had al gore won or bill clinton been in office, they would have tried different terrorist tack tucks and built a long standing goal for a long time but i really felt like they thought bush was the right guy for this strategy to actually work because it's just like yelling a homophobic epithet in a gay bar. you can't fight him because his friends are in the bar. it's that simple. this is interesting imani, you have condoleezza rice and the p.d.b. and donald rumsfeld and you go to war with the known unknowns you don't know. caller: you go to war with the army you have, with the military you have, you want or whatever that quote was. that was so awful. hal: yeah. the unarmorred humvees that you have at the time. you wrote an article about glenn greenwold and others who seemed to take an attack on addressing anything who didn't -- well, further of all, they were for it before they were against it and anybody against it from the beginning but then doesn't necessarily play by their rules gets attacked. it's a very strange thingings the thing that b
hillary clinton. and president obama at the house with had a special irish message. >> obama: there's an old irish saying that is the recipe for a long life is to leave the table hungry, leave the bed sleepy leave the bar thirsty, we'll see if that works tonight. [ laughter ] >> bill: and president obama took chuck todd to task for asking too many questions. >> another question i have for you -- >> obama: chuck how many you got. you are going to do this to the israeli press -- you see how the young lady from channel one. she had one question. >> bill: yeah, come on chuck. and finally weatherman says birthday to a very special friend watching the channel. >> any way, christie and joe hornton ninth anniversary, and hugh jaynus turning ten.

[ laughter ] >> stephanie: i'm just titillated by the whole thing. >> we've had several stories about when i ran 20 years ago and when i ran this time around and so a lot of the stories were about that. typically, you know, the more progressive. >> stephanie: you know what's interesting is i think it has become -- nonpartisan issue. i wouldn't say bipartisan, would yo
